Poor kitty!  I am feeling much the same... and I sound like a 90 year old geezer, who has smoked 3 packs a day since he was 13, followed by a scotch chaser.... ACK!

On a lighter note... I do have some good news to share! 

First, Fuzzy is in school again!  YAY!  Hooray for silence in the house (lol), but mostly hooray for him getting back to work at the 7th grade.  He has lots to make-up, and Hubby and I have been working with the principal, guidance counselor, and teachers to be sure nothing slips by.

Second, the title of this is 'Fame' and I am happy to share with you that my dear cousin, Karol, has gone all glam on us!  With respect to her job as a director of a Chamber of Commerce, she was giving a speech and her picture ended up in a few magazines. 

She will kill me that I am posting this, but I don't care!  I am so proud of her, and I think she looks gorgeous!

Congrats Karol!  You have put up with a lot of crap over the years, and I am happy to see you in a job you love and getting the recognition that you deserve!  Brava!

So, look at my picture on my sidebar... do we look alike?  There have been times when we have been taken as sisters! 

I went to bed last night at 6:45pm and slept until noon today.  Yep.  18 hours.  I was up and down a bit, with the hacking and nose blowing, but for the most part sleeping more than not.  I still feel like poop though.  Well rested poop, but poop, nonetheless.

Someday, when the sun shines and the weather picks a season to stick with, and it stops raining, I will feel better. 

But, for now, I will muddle through, smile on my face and just do what I can.  Carpe Diem, right?! 

be well,

You and Karol sure do look alike.  Congratulations to her!  Well rested poop?  You poor thing.  I can identify with sounding like a 90 year old geezer who has smoked 3 packs a day when getting up.  I sound worse now since I don't smoke.  Can't figure that one out.  Hope you get to feeling better.  HUGS Chris

So sorry, u r sick....Hope u r better now.  I've been sick as well...Must be somethin blowing cross country cause I think u r pretty far from me (here in N.C.)and it seems almost every one I know has had this bug or somethin the flu...feel like you r dying and no energy, congestion, nausea ( but I never threw up), low grade fever, aches and pains...really feeling down with it.  My son had it first...or one of our employees...then me and now hubby.  Someone told me go to bed and sweat it I did for about 24 hours and now all that's left of it is this slight congestion and cough!!!   Stay Well, I loveyour journal!!!
